Gentle Hatha yoga
Benjamin was born in the Dutch city of cheese, Gouda. He grew up in the Achterhoek, the very East of the Netherlands. After wandering around during his studies in France he settled in The Hague in 2001.
As a child it was impossible for him to sit still. Although he was always moving, sports weren’t his cup of tea. Growing older he became a passionate dancer with a longing for a peaceful mind.
In 2008 Benjamin made his first steps on a yoga mat, after the advice of a friend. He was sold immediately. This was the answer to the question he didn’t realize he had.
In The Hague Benjamin applied for a 3 year Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. As well as for a Kids Yoga Teacher Training. Sitting still never became an option and therefor his yoga classes are all about movement. Soft in motion he guides you on a journey. Like a meditative ‘dance’ flowing from pose to pose, to find the unified power of the body, the breath and the mind.
During the festival Benjamin guides you through a Gentle Hatha Yoga class. A class that focuses on the elements Earth, Water and Air. You will learn to stand with both feet on the ground, to explore your strengths and to be as free as a bird.
